OMI/Aura Multi-wavelength Aerosol Optical Depth and Single Scattering Albedo Daily L3 Global 0.25x0.25 deg Lat/Lon Grid

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: The OMI science team produces two Level-3 Aura/OMI Global Aerosol Data Products OMAERUVd (1deg Lat/Lon grids) and OMAEROe (0.25deg Lat/Lon grids). The OMAERUVd product is based on the Level-2 OMAERUV product that uses the near-UV algorithm whereas the OMAERO product is based on the multi-wavelength algorithm that uses up to 20 wavelength bands between 331 nm and 500 nm. OMAERO retrieval algorithm ... View entire text
